. >> well, i live in a different environment, too. i work for people in a different environment than what we see going on in some of these places where mass shootings are going, to the best of my knowledge. i live in a great county. we have a great population of people. and that's not to say that something like that couldn't happen in walton county. it very easily could. but we haven't reached the point of where we have gangs and that sort of thing. >> do you think more restrictions -- more gun restrictions will reduce crimes? >> i don't think it's going to make a difference at all. >> thank you, sheriff. >> we already have some laws now that i've tried to enforce that the federal authorities -- people would lie on an atf firearms form and it was no big deal. and i didn't understand it. >> thank you, sheriff. thanks for coming in. we appreciate you coming in. we'd like to have you back. >> thank you. >>> shortly after the newtown shootings, a gun shop owner came on this show to be a part of my panel and he has seen -- i want to know if he's seen any changes since then. what are his customers
world environment. and the lingering allegations of corruption, nepotism, hangs over his head. >> his brother and father were assassinated, so in some ways he's also trying to stay alive in that country. and facing that possibility, as well. it's been a contentious relationship with karzai over the years. he's had better relationships with some of the generals there like general stanley mcchrystal than he has with others. and i talked with pentagon officials yesterday who were saying they weren't sure how these meetings were going to go because you just never know when you're dealing with president karzai what you're going to get. and in fact i even e-mailed a couple days ago the folks i met in afghanistan during previous trips and they were somewhat concerned, as well, saying they weren't exactly sure what karzai was going to say while he was here with president obama because a lot of people in afghanistan especially some of the leaders there still very much want u.s. troops because they're fully aware that the afghan forces are not going to be ready by the end of next year. >> absol
students back into a peaceful and safe environment. many businesses and groups are promoting the love we have in newtown as well as fundraising to help those in most need. neighbors here and elsewhere are reaching out to each other to provide support, services, a listening ear, a should tore cry on. i have had the honor to meet people from similar events in aurora, columbine and virginia tech and hope they can teach ugh ways to help heal our families in town. i do not want to be someone sharing my experience and consoling another parent next time. i do not want there to be a next time. the sandy took promises the start of our change. it's a promise we make for our community, but we need a nation of communities to join us to meet -- i don't know yet what these changes are. i come with no preconceiveded agenda. i do believe there's no quick fix single action, but instead a multitude of interlinked actions that are needed. i love newtown. and i love sandy hook. my family chose to live here and we stand by our choice. one tragedy cannot undermine this town's spirit and love. it is already st
contracts, for fostering a lot of the corruption in the country. so this is the environment in which president obama and president karzai will be meeting, trying to hammer out some agreement. on the other hand, president karzai would probably be well served by a larger u.s. presence in afghanistan because the more u.s. troops you have there, the more afghan soldiers they're going to train, the better equipped the afghan force is going to be. so again, this is going to be a really tough set of negotiations to see where that number falls. i can tell you, just in the last day or a couple days, i'm hearing more and more that that 6,000 figure is way more likely than that 10,000 figure. >> i suppose either way, numbers of troops is one thing, amounts of money is another. afghan military we've helped bill up cost way more than the afghan government is able to afford, it's billions of dollars still have to go in. >> reporter: yeah. they're owing to have downsize the military. they were building up the afghan military to sort of push back the taliban. but it was always clear that at some poi
flood of cuts and for that kind of an environment you don't need somebody who's an outsider who doesn't have the practical experience and who's makedly ambitious for the job. what i don't get about this is the deputy secretary of defense ashton carter has all the experience in the world. he's a loyal democrat. he's done a terrific job. and the undersecretary of defense michel flonroy is trusted throughout the military. the president had people loyal to him with the qualifications and gone to an outside person whose reputation is that of a maverick who makes off the cuff decisions and i think that's very bad for defense department and for our security at this particular time in history. >> well, let me ask you on that issue of being an outsider. some say that's what's needed. i'm not so sure how outside he is but someone who's ambitious might be what you need considering the politics necessary in the defense department and the fact he's -- the president is reaching across the aisle to the republicans to supercede the choices you mentioned but have at it. >> okay. i have very little to
of statistics and the economic environment that we're in today? >> now, i wish i had an answer to that one. you know, i've said before that there is a highway into poverty today, and there's not even a sidewalk out. and there's very little, once you get there, and you are so there, that can be done to help you at this point in time. because there aren't the jobs, there aren't the resources, there aren't the credit limits that there used to be. so the real key here is, what can you do out there right now to prevent yourself from going into poverty? and i always say that there are three things. three things that if we could just learn to ask ourselves, before we spend a penny. number one, is it a need or a want? obviously, if it's a need, you have to buy it. if it's a want, can you just walk away? you have to get as much pleasure in saving as you do spending. this era of spending, spending, spending has got to go. and last but not least, we all have to get as much pleasu in saving as we do spending. so, you know, it's very interesting. >> suze, what if you're one of those people who's unemployed.
't be on guns but the environment giving rise to this violence. >> instead of having, as the nra proposes, a policeman in every school, our policy should be focused on getting a dad in every home. >> reporter: vice president biden said friday he is glad evangelical groups have participated in his gun policy task force meetings because in the past, they have been "reluctant to engage in the gun issue." athena jones, cnn, washington. >> you can see more about this story on our belief log at cnn.com/belief. >>> a maintenance shed in new york city's central park turned up a shocking discovery, a loaded cannon from an old british warship dating you to the revolutionary war. it's been sitting around for centuries. workers were cleaning the rust when they found the cannon still had gunpowder and a cannon ball. a spark or a flame could have set it off. >> this is an amazing surprise. it was there for so many years and people were sitting on it when it was a loaded cannon. >> technicians removed about two pounds of black powder and they have div posed of it at a gun range. what an amazing story. >
christians say the focus shouldn't be on gunnings but on the environment giving rise to this violence. >> instead of having as the nra proposes a policeman in every school, our policy should be focusing on getting a dad in every home. >> reporter: vice president biden said friday he's glad i n evangelical groups have participated in his gun policy task force meetings because in the past they have been, quote, reluctant to engage on the gun issue. athena jones, cnn, washington. >>> the president is promising action when it comes to curbing gun violence. the vice president even expected to endorse efforts to reinstate that assault weapons ban, but the opposition says that just isn't going to happen. t spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicort, today i'm breathing better. and that means...fish on! symbicort is for copd includi
on wall street to be concerned. but we're not really in a political environment, brooke, where the -- neither the white house nor most people are concerned with whether or not wall street likes the pick. but he is -- he's a guy who had experience. he was involved in the 1997 balanced budget deal. he's been involved in social security legislation. all the topics that are hot right now, jack lew does have experience with. >> you mentioned sequestration, of course. we have a couple of fiscal cliffs over the next two months. do we have any idea what kind of negotiator he'll be and he'll drive a tough bargain with the speaker of the house, john boehner. >> as the chief of staff of the white house, that's a key issue. you got to be able to be tough, you got to be able to negotiate. if you were grading the white house and its negotiating abilities in the last few months, you may not give them a very high grade. what you get in jack lew is a guy who is highly, specifically familiar with the budgeting process. i wouldn't normally say this, that that's the most important thing a treasury
medicare. it's about the environment. you talked about going on vacation and coming back and hearing the same thing. we're talking about the same thing from '95 as we are today. we haven't really decided yet what type of country we want to be and how we want to spend the money in order to get there. we spend a great deal of money on education. we probably spend more money per student than any other industrialized nations. yet when you look at the collective global testing, we're somewhere in the middle of the pack. so the conversation we need to be having isn't just about how much money or how are we spending that money, and is this moving us towards the type of country we want to be? >> that's much too complicated. i'm just kidding. >> this is the point. this is the debate. there has to be a debate. we're going to debate how we spend our money. we're now talking about when we have the debates. we should be having it in the traditional manner in which the governments operate. if we don't, we're going to be dealing with these cliffs. >> that's right. we shouldn't wait until the last m
. in the direct ground combat environment, women don't have an equal opportunity to survive or to help fellow soldiers survive. we have 30 years of studies on this and reports. it's not even in question. that's only the physical issue. >> i'd like to argue that point physically ready. i don't think these women who file a lawsuit would agree with you at all especially since one of them said "we're already fighting alongside our male counterparts." they returned fire, they dragged wounded comrades to safety, they engage the enemies. she says women are already doing this. they're physically capable of doing that. there's proof of that. this woman in particular won a purple heart for her bravery. >> again, definitions are important, as i said, yes, women are in harm's way, they are defending themselves, they are engaging the enemy, but they are not in the units we're talking about today, carol, direct ground combat, infancy battalions, the tip of the spear, special operations forces, marine and army infantry, that's what we're talking about. so although we respect and honor women who have served
difficult to get a loan than five or seven years ago. everybody know that is the lending environment was too loose. anybody could walk in and you didn't have to prove income and you could probably get it with no down payment. that department make sense. huh no skin in the game and so many loans went bad. the pendulum has swung and the lenders are worried that if they make loans now that they have financial liability. the rule is the ability to repay. if the borrower does not demonstrate the ability o ability to repay, the loan goes bad and the lender can be charged. >> this protects the lender as well. >> exactly. if they use these new rules that everybody will, it will be designated a qualified borrower. qualified borrowers are like preapproved by fannie mae and we will take loan and if it goes bad, it's our fault, not yours. >> how does it affect the howing market? >> not good. a lot of the market depends on first time home buyers. these are people who most need help. they tend not to have much in the way of a down payment and tend not to have the best credit in the world. they are just ge
the environment for sleep conducive to sleep, but in addition to that, doctors are getting very little education on sleep. and they're not addressing the sleep the way they need to. and so unfortunately when patients come to see physicians, what happens is they'll dispense sleeping pills and never get at the root cause. so if you get at the root cause, you can help a patient solve these problems and sleeping pills were never meant to be used for more than four to six weeks. after four to six weeks, you really want to be transitioning off the pills and using other modalities to help you sleep. >> that's scary to think of the things you can forget if you take this pill. so many people take it. dr. carol ashe, thanks so much. >> thank you for having me, brooke. >>> hundreds of amateur snake hunters from all over the world are heading to the florida everglades. they have machetes. they have guns. this is the first competition of its kind, folks, it's a python hunt. for one month here, a contest starting tomorrow, drawn in 500 people, more than a thousand bucks up for grabs for the person who catches
in the pool or humid environments, talking in the rain, you'll be protected with the coating. >> oh, no way. >> there you go, brooke. amazing. >> have him pull it back out and turn it on. because i don't believe him. >> just so i -- okay, i'm going to dump one here as well. and let's pull it out, make sure that it is working. >> or that was a really nice iphone 5. look at that. look at that. so when is this on the market, dan? >> how do folks -- so brooke is asking, we all want to know how can you get this? >> we're working to implement this in a lot of carriers and retailers. you can actually go into a store, or go to www.liquipel.com, order it and we'll send the device to us. we're based out of orange county, california, looking to go across the u.s. we're in hong kong and malaysia, australia, russia, and turkey. and about to be in china as well. >> thanks very much, sam. costs you about 60 bucks. one more time, brooke. there you go. we're going to be at ces over the next couple of days. we're looking for fun companies like this, but companies that have a real practical implication in peo
environment. >> sergeant cindy west from the wing county sheriff's department joins me on the phone from seattle. so, sergeant, thank you for calling in. i understand that authorities initially have been using cell phone pings trying to locate him. are you getting any sign from him whatsoever? >> i'm sorry. i can barely hear you. i think we have a bad connection. >> sergeant, can you hear me now? >> oh, this is never fun on live tv. cindy west, let me try one more time. let me ask about this man. >> i can hear you now. >> you do hear me. here's what i was asking. i know that folks in the sheriff's department using pings from the cell phone, trying to get a location. are you getting anything from him right now? >> no, unfortunately the pings we were getting from the cell phone were probably prior to the jump. we believe he either turned the cell phone off prior to the jump or after the jump it was damaged. and in keep in mind it doesn't give you an exact gps location, it gives you a general triangulation. based on that, the flight pattern of the helicopter, we narrowed it down to the area
with a cascading flood of cuts. and for that kind of an environment, you don't need somebody who is an outsider who doesn't have the practical experience and who's nakedly ambitious for the job. >> tom cotton is a republican congressman, veteran of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. thank you for coming in. >> thank you, wolf. good to be here with you. >> why do you oppose the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary? >> wolf, the president said that chuck hagel is the leader our troops deserve. i couldn't disagree any more strongly. our troops deserve much better than a man who voted to send them to war when it was popular and then abandon those very troops when it was unpopular. i would know, wolf. i was one of those troops. i returned from iraq in november 2006 with my platoon from the 101st airborne just as chuck hagel was writing that we couldn't achieve victory in iraq, that time for more troops had passed and it was time to withdraw. he just didn't oppose the surge, wolf. he called it the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country's history since vietnam. he delayed emerge
